our Partner Charities include


Pedestrian is a leading arts organisation specialising in music and arts education based in the heart of Leicester’s bustling city centre. Since 1998, they have built a strong track record of delivering high quality creative activity.

They provide education, training and outreach projects for young people at risk, vulnerable adults and communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and across the Midlands. Their participants are often socially excluded, not in education, employment or training (NEET) or experiencing disadvantage.

They believe that with the right levels of support and timely intervention everyone can achieve their goals – they call this ‘Pioneering Potential’.

Creativity is a key part of their lives. At Pedestrian they offer the chance for everyone to explore this through music, dance, photography, street art and many other art-forms regardless of who they are and where they come from.

Pedestrian worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the fantastic artist Andrew Petrouis to create a digital artwork for the project.
